Dame Edna Lookalike Contest!

Hello Possums!

As Dame Edna continues to tour America with her "vibrantly stimulating theatrical infrastructure" in the form of "Dame Edna - My First Last Tour", we have news that the gorgeous little non-entities of Florida have been invited to enter a Dame Edna Lookalike contest to win tickets to the show.

Dame Edna is, of course, an international style guru and fashion icon (most recently celebrated with her own MAC collection!), and desperados the world over are always attempting to recreate the gigastar glamour, with mostly inadequate results. After all, very few have her eye for refined understatement, do they?

No doubt her adoring fans will enter this contest in their squillions!

But - goodness me! - let's hope that there won't be any men entering. I think that the idea of a man getting dressed up in women's clothing is a little uncalled-for.

A little bit yucky.

Call me old-fashioned, Possums, but I do!

Dame Edna Back On Tour in the USA!

Hello Possums!

Just in time for the weekend, we bring you a
review of Dame Edna's gorgeous show "My First Last Tour", which she is now performing to the grateful non-entities of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Edna is back on tour in the USA for the next four months, prior to her return to the UK in her dazzling show "The Last Night of the Poms". She's a busy 'ol Housewife / Megastar!

In light of the world's tragic state of affairs, we've no doubt that they'll all be begging for day passes from their Florida "Sunset Retirement Facilities", desperate for a glimpse of the gladioli glamour. They will, of course, be heavily medicated and confused, but will certainly enjoy the colour and the movement - the lucky little mites!

Here then is the article from The Miami Herald, with several brief video clips of the show to enjoy:

Dame Edna's Still Got Game

They must have been grateful on opening night when, gazing out at the adoring multitudes she remarked "You've aged tragically, even for Florida!". Call me old fashioned, but I'm sure she meant it nicely!

More Celebrations of Barry!

You little Darlings!

Following on from our last post celebrating Barry Humphries' 75th birthday, we're pleased this week to bring you a link to yet another article about the brilliant Bazza.

The Sunday Times recently featured an article written by Kathy Lette, Barry's neighbour in London, discussing his life, loves, and of course, laughs. Enjoy, Possums:
